    posted a message on You know why 1.8 is such an disapointment?
    Quote from MrFlippeh

    Actually, 1.7 was supposed to be the adventure update. Instead it won't be finished in 1.9, and they left us with a half assed biome code in 1.8.

    That's why i'm dissapointed.


    Yeah, 1.7 was supposed to be the adventure update... but people like you can't be patient. Why are you disappointed that a huge update is taking a long time? Don't you WANT updates to be bigger?

    First people complain that the updates aren't big enough. People explain that bigger updates take more time, but you complain anyway. Then Notch starts trying to make a bigger update, and then people complain that it's taking too long, and that he should get it out already. Well we can't have unfinished features released, so Notch releases only a few features in an in-between update. But wait, where are all the other features? They were pushed back to the next update you say? so you complain again. Then you complain more about how you want the new biomes now, and look, he releases an unfinished version of the biomes... and now you complain again.


    So we have unfinished biomes. Well don't be disappointed that an unfinished game is unfinished. Morons.


    Just take your updates and offer feedback about the features. Don't ***** and moan about it taking a long time to release the full update, or about features being incomplete.

    Ugh. You people seem to think that it has to either be on or off. Why don't you suggest things like "make it only apply at layer 10 and below" or "make it so you can see if you light using glowstone or jackolanterns"?

    No, instead you say "OFF OR TOGGLEABLE ONLY. ಠ_ಠ

    Hey guise? I suppose you aren't programmers, because anyone who has ever worked on games knows that bugs can appear after you test stuff . I mean, some people have already done things like right-clicking sheep and pushing water and not had crashes, perhaps this is an issue with a specific combination of factors? Like, have you all updated Java?

    posted a message on Minecraft not minecrafty Anymore?
    Back when there was just Creative Mode and notch was talking about adding monsters, people thought that adding monsters would take away from the game's creative vibe. Then he talked about adding weapons and tools for digging, and making digging take time: people complained that this would make it feel less like the same game, since building would be too hard.

    Then he talked about adding infinitely large maps, and people said that it would make the game less focused on mining/crafting and more on exploration.

    Then he added the Nether and other things and people said it was becoming to combat-focused.

    Now you are saying that it's feeling less Minecrafty. Well let me tell you something: You aren't using the right word. The game DOES still feel Minecrafty, because Minecraft IS what it IS. What you mean to say is it feels less like Minecraft v 1.X, or v0.X.

    Of course it does. What did you expect from a game still in Beta? That it would stay the same?

    This whole thing is just snobbishness. You people should be ashamed of yourselves.

    Regardless of the reputation console players have, the fact is that Minecraft just isn't attractive to "hardcore" CoD players and 12-year-olds hyped up on sugar. The kinds of people it appeals to are people like you. People like you who don't have great PCs or prefer console games, but still value deep creative experiences like Minecraft. My girlfriend is one person who prefers using a controller for games, and who likes to sit in the bedroom, not at a desk, when playing games.

    I play the hell out of the game on the PC, and yet I will still probably play the console version as well, just because of the ready social structure of xbox live.

    The fact is the console version's existence isn't going to change **** about the game or the community. In fact, it's people like YOU that make communities like this worse: you think you are so much better than another demographic that you stereotype like all hell, so they come here and think that it's normal to be a bigotted moron who whines and screams about change.

    Go sit in the corner, you all, and let the console players have some fun too.

    posted a message on The Spider
    Tell me how you like it. I posted it here about a year ago, notch even put it on his blog at http://notch.tumblr.com/post/474952074/the-spider-by-nazzer-based-on-the-raven-by-e-a-poe


    Once upon a midnight dreary, while I crafted weak and weary,
    Over many a dark and curious workbench of forgotten ore,
    While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
    As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my fortress door.
    `'Tis some visitor,' I muttered, `tapping at my fortress door -
    Only this, and nothing more.'

    Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December,
    And each separate dying pig wrought its pork upon the floor.
    Eagerly I wished the morrow; - vainly I had sought to borrow
    From my mine surcease of sorrow - sorrow for the lost gold ore -
    For the rare and radiant rock whom the angels named gold ore -
    Nameless here for evermore.

    And the silken sad uncertain rustling of each darkened tunnel
    Thrilled me - filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
    So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating
    `'Tis some visitor entreating entrance at my fortress door -
    Some late visitor entreating entrance at my fortess door; -
    This it is, and nothing more,'

    Presently my soul grew stronger; hesitating then no longer,
    `Sir,' said I, `or Zombie, truly your forgiveness I implore;
    But the fact is I was crafting, and so gently you came rapping,
    And so faintly you came tapping, tapping at my fortress door,
    That I scarce was sure I heard you' - here I opened wide the door; -
    Darkness there, and nothing more.

    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing,
    Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before
    But the silence was unbroken, and the darkness gave no day cycle,
    And the only words there spoken were the whispered words, `gold ore!'
    This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the words, `Gold ore!'
    Merely this and nothing more.

    Back into the fortress turning, all my coal within me burning,
    Soon again I heard a tapping somewhat louder than before.
    `Surely,' said I, `surely that is something at my window lattice;
    Let me see then, what thereat is, and this mystery explore -
    Let my hearts be still a moment and this mystery explore; -
    'Tis the pigs and nothing more!'

    Open here I flung the sand blocks, when, with many a flirt and flutter,
    In there stepped a stately spider of the saintly days of yore.
    Not the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped or stayed he;
    But, with mien of lord or zombie, perched above my fortress door -
    Perched upon a bust of Saint Notch just above my fortress door -
    Perched, and sat, and nothing more.

    Then this arachnid beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
    By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,
    `Though thy width be a block and wider, thou,' I said, `art sure no hider.
    Ghastly grim and ancient spider wandering from the nightly shore -
    Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night's Minecraftian shore!'
    Quoth the spider, `No more ore.'

    Much I marvelled this black arachnid to hear discourse so plainly,
    Though its answer little meaning - little relevancy bore;
    For we cannot help agreeing that no living human being
    Ever yet was blessed with seeing bug above his fortress door -
    Bug or beast above the sculptured bust above his fortress door,
    With such 3 names as `No more ore.'

    But the spider, sitting lonely on the placid bust, spoke only,
    Those three words, as if his soul in that one phrase he did outpour.
    Nothing further then he uttered - not a legjoint then he fluttered -
    Till I scarcely more than muttered `Other friends have burnt before -
    On the morrow he will leave me, as zombies have burnt before.'
    Then the bug said, `No more ore.'

    Startled at the stillness broken by reply so aptly spoken,
    `Doubtless,' said I, `what it utters is its only stock and store,
    Caught from some unhappy master whom unmerciful disaster
    Followed fast and followed faster till his mines one burden bore -
    Till the dirges of his fort that melancholy burden bore
    Of "No more, no more ore."'

    But the spider still beguiling all my sad soul into smiling,
    Straight I wheeled a crafted seat in front of bug and bust and door;
    Then, upon the gray cloth sinking, I betook myself to linking
    Fancy unto fancy, thinking what this ominous bug of yore -
    What this grim, ungainly, ghastly, gaunt, and ominous bug of yore
    Meant in screeching `No More Ore.'

    This I sat engaged in guessing, but no syllable expressing
    To the mob whose fiery eyes now burned into my bosom's core;
    This and more I sat divining, with my head at ease reclining
    On the cushion's gray cloth lining that the torch-light gloated o'er,
    But whose gray cloth crafted lining with the torch-light gloating o'er,
    She shall press, ah, nevermore!

    Then, methought, the air grew denser, perfumed from an unseen censer
    Swung by Seraphim whose foot-falls tinkled on the tufted floor.
    `Wretch,' I cried, `thy God hath lent thee - by these angels he has sent thee
    Respite - respite and nepenthe from thy memories of gold ore!
    Quaff, oh quaff this kind nepenthe, and forget this lost gold ore!'
    Quoth the spider, `No more ore.'

    `Prophet!' said I, `thing of evil! - prophet still, if bug or devil! -
    Whether tempter sent, or whether tempest tossed thee here ashore,
    Desolate yet all undaunted, on this random land gen'rated -
    On this home by horror haunted - tell me truly, I implore -
    Is there - is there balm in Gilead? - tell me - tell me, I implore!'
    Quoth the spider, `No more ore.'

    `Prophet!' said I, `thing of evil! - prophet still, if bug or devil!
    By that Heaven that bends above us - by that God we both adore -
    Tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant Aidenn,
    It shall clasp a sainted tunnel through whom angels veined Gold ore-
    Clasp a rare and darkened tunnel, through whom angels veined Gold ore?'
    Quoth the spider, `No more ore.'

    `Be that word our sign of parting, bug or fiend!' I shrieked upstarting -
    `Get thee back into the tempest and the Night's Minecraftian shore!
    Leave no white string as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken!
    Leave my loneliness unbroken! - quit the bust above my door!
    Take thy fangs from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!'
    Quoth the spider, `No more ore.'

    And the spider, never jumping, still is sitting, still is sitting
    On the pallid bust of Saint Notch just above my fortress door;
    And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,
    And the torch-light o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
    And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
    Shall find there's - no more ore!




    Even though this was mainly about running out of ore on smaller maps on Indev mode, it still applies.

    Agreed. I mean, they already do this with depth. If you look through glass like this:

    You only see the closest and farthest surface. I'd like for this to do the same if looking like this:
